    Seriously, Gaouser, you have to start Googling. Find what you need, and if you have any problems with it, we'll give you a hand.

    Giving your custom file extension an icon is easy, but seeing how you do things, I'm afraid you might brick your old laptop trying.

    Have you made any progress with the other stuff you needed help with in your other threads?

    Google can't find exactly what you need if you don't give it enough details that are correct, like the problem you always have on VBForums.

    Think about what you want to accomplish, and carefully translate it to English into the Google search bar. Your search term also needs the programming language, for example (using your threads simple title) "How to put icon to a file format VB.NET." Format should've been extension, but I still was able to get search results that link to the code you need.

    In the Google search bar, enter what I quoted above.

    But before you try the code examples you find, you need to know that there's a good chance you will brick your system with this code, since you have a problem with following instructions in English. You should forget the idea of giving your custom file extension it's own icon.

    Why do you need a custom file extension?

    You seem to be juggling too many things at once with no progress. Is everything you posted within the last 3 weeks on VBForums related to one project? Have you accomplished anything with the help you've gotten within the other threads?

    You need to slow down. Translate my English to your language, and read it 3 or 4 times until you understand what I've asked you. Also reread your response to me as many times to make sure it actually answers my questions before you translate it to English.
